Tragedies and Mysteries of Rock’n’Roll

The history of rock is studded with stars with a doomed talent, whose chaotic lives have come to an end as they paid the highest price of all. From Elvis Presley to Sid Vicious, Bob Marley and John Belushi, via Freddie Mercury, Kurt Cobain and Michael Jackson, including the most recent stories to hit the headlines, such as the sudden deaths of Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston… Although drugs and excess are behind many of these premature passings, this book also investigates mysteries that have never been properly explained – the death of John Lennon first and foremost – and myths such as the “27 Club”, which counts among its members the many artists who have died in the seemingly ill-fated year following their twenty-seventh birthday.
